Slat-back or ladder-back armchair in maple, repainted green-black in the nineteenth century, with a rush seat and old blue material cushion. The chair, which would have had finials originally on top of the turned back posts, has double ball turnings between the upper two arched slats. The compressed ball-turned arms slant sharply down, ending in flattened mushroom hand grips. The front posts have the same double ball turnings above the front seat rail, with additional turnings on the front legs. These kind of turnings usually indicate a Connecticut origin; however, they have also been found on earlier Carver-like chairs from Rhode Island. The stretchers have small ball turnings at each end, and the back legs are plain.
